IL-St Charles-Dustin Villarreal Mem.Fund.Concert-SAT 4/2

Postby jweger77 » Mon Jul 16, 2012 4:33 pm

Our second trip to the Dustin Villarreal Memorial Fundraiser Concert was a great time once again this year. We had a strong showing including a lot of folks that I met for the first time. Unfortunately for two of them I don't have any TK numbers, I searched for them and couldn't come up with anything on the Legion search. It was great to meet you!

We arrived early to get suiting up for the madness along the highway in front of the Theatre. While we didn't cause any accidents this time, it's going to happen eventually on this one! It's always at rush hour and the theatre is right at a busy intersection.

We posed for a ton of pics and brought some more folks into the show and generally had a great time! Thanks to everyone who made it out and I look forward to next year!

Please let me know if I made any errors in the attendance list below. It's been awhile since the event and my memory is far from perfect!

Will be posting this information at the Charity Blog...

was he a young cancer patient?
Did his family set up this fundraiser?
And the memorial fund is for research?

Dustin was a high schooler who died suddenly and without warning because of an unknown heart defect. The fundraiser is done every year to raise money for two scholarships for seniors at Geneva High School where he attended. Fundraiser is organized and run my his father, Dave.

Thanks for the info on Paul and George....I wasn't sure on them and couldn't find any record. Now I know! Thanks!
